I’ve been using the Sukin Organics facial scrub religiously since I got it back in April and I loved it so much that I’ve went out and bought a second tube for when the first one runs out. The one tube has lasted me for 6 months (and counting), and I just love how it has made my skin feel without forking out too much money for it.
The Sukin Organics Revitalising Scrub is stocked at most leading pharmacies and health food stores but I usually grab my Sukin skincare products from Priceline or ChemistWarehouse depending on who has the sales on. If you’re not in Sydney, or Australia for that matter, they’ve got stockists all over the world you can take a look at on their website.
What Sukin says it does
Sukin’s website describes the face scrub as a gentle cream cleanser that uses tiny, tiny particles of bamboo extract and ground walnut shells to promote skin renewal. These micro-particles exfoliate to rid your skin of dirt and impurities, leaving you with clean, smooth and radiant skin.
They’ve also taken advantage of the soothing and calming properties of aloe vera and chamomile combined with a blend of rose hip, jojoba and sesame oils to protect your skin’s natural moisture barrier.
What it does for me
This facial scrub worked well at exfoliating my skin without it feeling like someone had taken sandpaper to my face. Although most people don’t recommend using a face scrub daily, I’ve been using it every night in the shower and feel that its gentle enough to be part of my daily skincare routine.
It smells very lightly of orange and vanilla, a scent that adds to the natural theme of the brand. I also have no complaints with the packaging either because the scrub’s light formula just slides easily out of its recyclable LDPE tube with a gentle squeeze.
The cost versus benefits
The recommended retail price (RRP) is $9.95 AUD, but Priceline and Chemist Warehouse often have sales that reduce the pricetag to as low as $6.95 AUD. Considering that I’m only just finishing my first tube after 6-7 months of use (and crazy for it), I think Sukin’s Revitalising Facial Scrub is the best alternative to all those chemical-laden cleansers commonly found in pharmacies, especially if you live on a tight budget like me. I love using their facial moisturiser after I cleanse, you can read the review here.
